Welcome to Southport Orchestra

WE TAKE OUR FUN SERIOUSLY

Southport Orchestra is growing and now has over 50 members. However, we are not just growing in numbers but also in reputation because of our excellent performances. We are a really friendly group of talented musicians who enjoy performing and just playing together and whilst we have a great deal of fun making music, we also take our performances very seriously, that is why we are very happy to rehearse hard each week to make each concert a success.

We play mostly a 'classical' repertoire but also perform light music, usually in a gala performance in the summer.

Whilst we are continuing to grow, we always need new musicians, especially in the string sections. However, vacancies in other sections do occur from time to time. If you are interested, have a look in our 'Join Us' section for details. Our rehearsals are from 7:45pm to 10pm on Tuesday evenings at All Saints Church Hall, off Park Road, Southport PR9 9JB.

2017/18 Concert  Season
England / Germany / USA / Russia

The next concert will feature music from Germany with repertoire of the Romantic Era.

Merry Wives of Windsor Overture - Otto Nicolai
Almost everyone has heard this very tuneful overture but very few can remember the name of the composer. First performed in 1849 to great success it has remained popular ever since.

Flute Concerto in D major Op. 283 - Carl Reinecke
Composed in 1908, this is one of the few 'Romantic' flute concerto's in the repertoire. One music critic described it as, 'A substantial work which makes amends for the fact that Brahms never wrote a flute concerto'.

Symphony No.3 in F major Op.90 - Johannes Brahms
Probably Brahm's most romantic symphony. Premiered on 1883 and was a stupendous success. It is the shortest of Brahms symphonies and compared favourably with Beethoven's 3rd Symphony 'Eroica'.

Jane Pembleton-Smyth will be our soloist.

We in Southport Orchestra are very lucky to have Jane as our principal flautist. She trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and she teaches flute at both Keele and Manchester Metropolitan universities.

Tickets are now available.
